ECS EliteGroup K7S5A Motherboard

by rondall / May 7, 2007 8:09 AM PDT

Hi guys, I have this motherboard, ECS EliteGroup K7S5A Socket462. A friend gave it to me with no manual or driver. Each time i search for such i come up empty, or get sent to various sites with german or spanish language. Since i know nothing about this board, i am stuck, but on one Italian site i saw this much info concerning the Processors for this board. Is this a very slow processor ie:FSB 266/200MHZ ?
Is it worth my time putting this board in a case, asking you guys where to find a manual/Drivers for this board or just get a faster better board.
Your comments and any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have one of these motherboards and have had the same trouble finding info about it as well. i have an amd athlon 2500 cpu in it and it's about as good as an intel celeron 1.8ghz processor.

In short, sell it for a few quid and put it toward a berrter board...

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
